With autumn in full swing, even if its been a little warmer than usual, we’ve broken out our sweaters, scarves and boots to brave the coming chilly weather.
LR has already shared our fall fashion essential picks, but our editors are excited to showcase their personal favorites.
Catherine, our Editorial Assistant, lives in New Jersey, but is a city girl at heart. Blogging is her calling, but when she’s not writing she enjoys running, reading, and painting her nails.
Fall is Catherine’s favorite season so saying she’s excited is an understatement. After heading over to the mall, see what she’s added to her fall wardrobe:
Put a little pep in your step with cute booties!
“Last year I was really into knee high boots, but now I’m obsessing over booties! I just bought some really cute Steve Madden mid-calf boots that I spotted at TJMaxx for a great price. I think that booties are a great fall staple because it’s not too cold yet where you need to cover up most of your leg to keep warm. There are so many different styles that you can choose to style up any outfit whether it’s casual or more formal.”
Steve Madden, Enngage Boot, $90
Cozy up on those brisk fall days with a sweater.
“In past years I found myself wearing more fitted sweaters, but nowadays I’m more into comfort. Over-sized and loose fit sweaters are perfect way to stay warm while still feeling comfortable. I don’t find myself having to layer up as much after picking out some cute ones. I usually pair one with some of skinny jeans, boots or Converse.”
Forever 21, Classic Chunky Knit Sweater, $23
Throw on a scarf to liven up any outfit.
“I like wearing solid colors most of the time so when I want to put a little color into my outfit, I throw on a patterned infinity scarf. When the cool weather comes around, scarves can keep you warm while also making your outfit more fashion forward. I usually wear one with plain long sleeves or on top of a sweater.”
Nordstrom, Lulu Bright Stripe Infinity Scarf, $20
